If you've received a campaign message from an employer or location that doesn't appeal to you, you can temporarily remove yourself from the send-list to avoid receiving any similar outreach for 90 days.
To temporarily remove yourself from the send-list associated with a campaign, you can choose to "mute" yourself from the following two options:
- You won't receive any campaign messages from the employer for 90 days - this includes messages sent from other users at the company.
- You won't receive any campaign messages for the specific job location for 90 days - this applies to any Handshake-hosted job with the specified job location.
Campaigns are a messaging approach used by employers to highlight opportunities they think you may be interested in.
If you need to report a message in Handshake, refer to Safety: Report a Message.
Mute a Message via Campaign
From your inbox, locate the message you'd like to mute and then click on it - this will display the message on the page.
In the upper-right corner of the message, click the white button Mute...
In the pop-up that appears, choose what you'd like to mute:
- The company for 90 days
- The location for 90 days
Once you've selected the outreach you'd like to mute, click the black button Confirm, located in the lower-right corner of the pop-up. The campaign message will then go to your Archived messages.
To access your archived messages and unmute a campaign, click the three dots menu to the right of Inbox, then click Archived. Locate the campaign message you muted, then click the blue link Unmute.
